Make Money Scrapbooking Idea #13: Create Digital Products

by Lain Ehmann on June 8, 2010

Got mad computer skills? Then you may be the perfect person to create and sell digital scrapbooking products!

Digital scrapbooking is at an all-time high. People who never thought they’d rely on the computer to create scrapbook layouts (uh… MOI!) are turning to digital scrapbooking in droves. And it’s easier than ever to design products!

Now, I am the absolute wrong person to ask how to create digital scrapbook elements. But I can tell you that the market is growing, and if you’re a pixelhead, there is a spot for you! You can market your wares on your blog or own website, or you can join a collaborative or online store. The best news: Once you create your products, you don’t have to worry about inventory, shipping, or storage. It’s all digital, baby!

Great for: People who already own Adobe Photoshop C4 and Adobe Illustrator and know how to use it.

Potential earning: The sky’s the limit! Paper packs sell for $1-$5 or more, individual elements can run $1 and up, and kits go for several dollars on up to $15-$20.

Suggestions: See what’s selling through digital stores such as Oscraps, Designer Digitals, and Jessica Sprague, and what the price points are. Also, for a starting point, check out the digital design classes at Jessica Sprague’s site.
